    3 out of my five cabs are molting and one of the two topside just went down, is it normal for so many crabs to molt at the same time? will my only other crab get depressed without his friends? most of these molters went down directly after i got them, is that normal(and no they are not de-stressing they have been down for a week or two)

    sorry i have so many questions, but im worried, especially about my straw because it went down within minutes after i got him and its my first one

    thanks for reading

    yes is norm for them to molt in groups
    They could still be destressing for destressing can take as long as molting.

    Oh god, I can't agree with you more on this. It's so annoying! I don't know but I think all of my hermit crabs are molting! And one of them came up from molting and I played with him so much because I was so happy to finally see one that he got stressed and buried back down!:mad:
